How to shoot down every antifeminist argument

  • Argument: Feminists can't even agree on what feminism is!! Weh weh I bet you can't even define it, can you?
  • Response: Feminism is the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men. While different feminists have different schools of thought, that does not lessen the overall mission. For example, there are many schools of thought within Buddhism but that does not mean its beliefs are any less valuable.
  • Argument: Okay but if it's about equality, why is it called FEMINism hmm???
  • Response: Because women are currently not being treated equally to men, and improving things for one group of people doesn't make things worse for another group of people. For example, if I donate money to the children in Uganda, that does not mean I am making things worse for the children in Ukraine. It probably just so happens that the kids in Uganda need it more urgently. Your concern about the word feminism is in fact shock at the fact that women could have the audacity to name a word after themselves.
  • Argument: Okay but men have problems too!!
  • Response: Yes, they do, just like every group of people. And while sexism towards men is not institutionalized like misogyny is, feminists usually do more for men's rights than antifeminists do. Feminists acknowledge the gender roles that hurt both men and women (the demonizing of femininity and condemnation of men to a narrow image of masculinity).
  • Argument: But women are treated equally to men now! That is so outdated! Tell me one right men have that women don't.
  • Response: Your belief that women are treated equally to men is incredibly myopic and focused on the Western society. In most countries around the world, baby girls are being killed because their parents want males, women are being jailed and sometimes executed for being raped, others are forced to marry their rapist, domestic abuse towards women is seen as "educating" them, little girls are being shot in the head for seeking a real education, and I could go on forever. But since you clearly only care about the Western society, here's a list of things that happens to women in it: they are shamed for being open about their sexualities, they are objectified on a mass scale in the media to the extent that even women view themselves as sex objects, old white men are constantly trying to take away their reproductive rights, there is a rape culture that women live in with terror, they are blamed for their own rape, their bodies are viewed as liabilities that they must hide despite their will for self-expression, and so on.

This is from the slut walk. One of the arguments is that girls ask for rape because they wear slutty clothes, short skirts, tight, low-cut tops. This girl is an example of the fact that rape victims can look like anyone, you, me, this girl. Rapists. Dont. Discriminate.

I promised a long time ago that I’d reblog this whenever I saw it on my dash. No regrets, it breaks my heart every single time.

an incredibly important message, rape is rape. no one is ever asking for it. a woman has the right to dress how ever they want - it is society that identifies risque dressing as ‘asking for it’, and in my opinion, that way of thinking needs to be diminished.

Seriously if you see this and don’t reblog it, I have NO respect for you

Everyone should re-blog this.  YES, IT IS THAT IMPORTANT! 

I just want to give this girl a shout-out for the courage and will it probably took to wear those same clothes again.

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!! NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE… Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.
